COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our homage to the beers that have quenched the thirst of Belgian farm workers for centuries. Brewed with barley, wheat and rice and fermented at high temperatures with a special blend of four different yeast strains, Saison is fruity and slightly tart, with a dry finish that makes it that rarest of treats–a beer as refreshing as it is complex. 7.3% ABV.

3.1
RasterMaster (258) - , Oklahoma, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Hazy pale blonde pour into thick white bubbly head that quickly dissipates as carbonated bubbles rise from the bottom of the glass into a ring of swirling bubbly lacing. Aroma of yeasty biscuit, cereal grains, and barnyard straw. Initial flavor of malty grain and doughy wheat bread that fades into a crisp lemony finish.

HopHeadinAZ (180) - Arizona, USA - MAY 12, 2012
12oz bottle: pours a hazy told with a thin white head. The nose is spicy with some light funk. The tatte is where this beer shines. It has some barn yard notes and bread. The mouthfeel is medium heavy. This is a nice beer overall and something I look forward to when it is released.

3.3
TizzleJizzle (792) - Garland, Texas, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Tap at flying saucer Fort Worth. Tart, earthy, spice, citrus, lemon zest. Slightly cloudy, golden color, small head. Good brew

BREWMUSKCLES (2759) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 10, 2012
a little honey sweetness and a cloudy brew with a bit of soft grit in the mouth. some saison light tart and yeasty Belgian clove and coriander type spice with fruit and somewhat lemony in the flavor. a bit of off fishy smoke to it. everything described is in small order wafting in and out.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2014 Okay...rerate. I don’t know what I drank before, but this doesn’t taste like poo. And it’s good, and I’d drink another. And another after that. Maybe it was infected- maybe I ate something weird that night. I don’t know. This bottle, however, is a beautiful classic saison with rich yeasty, spicy aromas and flavors. It’s really good. It’s got a hazy yellow color with small white head. It’s good and nothing like what my first review represents. Me? Them? I don’t know but it was good this time.

(5)(3)(4)(3)&# Hrmmm.... This is weird. It’s like a smokey, molasses saison. I don’t get it, and don’t really like it. This- no joke- smells like poop. Really. Is that farmhousey enough for you? Do you get a poop flavor by mixing too much together, like how you mix all the paint colors together and you get brown? It does, however, taste better than I imagine poop tasting, which is why I’ll finish the bottle. So it’s got that goin for it.

Brewsta (64) - Colorado, USA - MAY 5, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2012 The aroma is very earthy, spicy, and an edge of sulfur. A thin white head sits in a hazy straw yellow beer. Flavors are citrusy and coriander-like spice. Perceptible tartness, slightly sour. medium light body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.6
IRBent (14) - Alabama, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Poured from bottle into sampler. Hazy pale yellow appearance with light head that quickly dissipated. Sweet fruity floral fragrance that’s unique and inviting. Very light on the tongue with a taste that follows closely to its smell. Low carbonation and lack of bitterness that makes for a smooth and easy drink.

3.8
Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Bottle: The aroma consists of lemon/lemon peel, floral notes, yeast, and a hint of pepper. It pours a cloudy dull yellow with a small white head. The flavor starts with lemon and yeasty. The finish is floral along with lemon peel, citrus, and a hint of pepper. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel. Overall, much better than I expected.

3.7
mikesaum (712) - Newark, Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Pours a straw color, slightly hazy with a nice white head that dies quickly into a ring, tons of bubbles from the D in my duvel glass, aroma is a bit funky, belgian yeast, citrus, horse blanket. Taste has some nice yeast notes and a very citrus flavor, mostly lemon, refreshing and just a little funk, could have used more. Nice beer

3.8
berrya785 (441) - Kansas, USA - MAY 4, 2012
12 oz bottle. Aroma is cherry, apple, and spice. Pours a cloudy yellow with a foamy head. Taste is sour apples and cherries with a little spice and wheat. Great beer.
